We are looking for confident, positive and energetic people to join our team of family violence specialists! LIHS is a fast-paced, dynamic and innovative organization staffed by a team of highly dedicated professionals. See the specific job postings for more information.
Volunteering requires patience, dedication, and commitment but the result, knowing that you made a difference in your community and the lives of others, is always worth it. Whether you are in our store helping to ensure people have access to clothing, household essentials and hygiene supplies, helping at a special event or sharing your skills and knowledge with youth at our youth center, there is a place for you at the Lloydminster Interval Home Society.
Are you a member of a community group or team and looking for an opportunity to get involved in your community, build team morale and get to know your teammates outside of the office or off of the playing field? Group volunteer opportunities are available, and our volunteer coordinator would love to work with you to design the perfect give back day.
Why do people volunteer with us?
I love giving back to the community and have formed some really great friendships over the years.
I believe in the work we are doing for the community.
I was at a time and place in my life when I wanted to give back and I picked this organization because of the cause it supported, which is also why I continue!
I am proud to help women and children in our community.

How We Are Funded
The Lloydminster Interval Home Society is a registered non-profit organization in the Provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan. The Government of Alberta, Children & Youth Services provides about 60% of our operating budget and the remaining 40% is raised by our own fundraising efforts and individual donations. Without the support of our province, city and region we would not be able to provide the varied and high quality services we provide to women and children fleeing domestic violence and other life crisis.

The idea of a “home for women in crisis” in Lloydminster was spawned between Dolores Cummine and Marge Nattress and other concerned community members in 1979. In the spring of 1980, the Minister of Saskatchewan Social Services and his aides traveled to Lloydminster to meet with the board. With great disappointment, it was learned that showing a need in the community was not enough to receive government funding.
